What If the World’s Food Supplies Run Out?

What If the World’s Food Supplies Run Out? Will science and technology be our saviour in the years to come.Some people think the next war will be over water resources. But it might be so that it will be about food.

The poor were having too many babies. If this continued, I reckon, the planet would run out of food. Well, there were only nine hundred million humans on the planet once. Now there are about 7 billion. This is expected to rise to 10 billion by mid-century.
